Jet engine rumble

i am always excited to hear the jet rumble whenever I go to the airport. I am not sure if you can hear this in SF2004 with a good soundcard. My sound card is an integrated one, never paid attention to sound quality before, and I dont hear any rumble from my card.....
I use a heavy duty head set, if there is the rumble from the soundcard I should hear it, or maybe I can set up a subwoofer to simulate this sound....

I can "feel" the sound from my subwoofer when a designer puts a good sound file in his aircraft. I've never used earphones, I never really thought about doing it.
Go into your sound cards control panel and reset it for 3 speakers if you buy another.

most motherboards nowadays have a pretty decent interlaced sound card onboard. I was having the same trouble not getting that good low end thru my high quality headphones. i fiddled with my sound settings in windows first to get a good balance from music and such then in FS9 i went to my sound settings and turned everything down to about half way, engines even lower. then i maxed out my enviornment slider and i got a pretty good feeling of reality now. the rumbles come thru fine with that enviornment setting under your sound settings.

well if you are talking about in the plane, it will depend on what sounds you have and how good quality they are.
